Each school day, the Norwalk City School District's bus fleet of 22 buses serves almost 1,300 eligible (see below) public and parochial students in 15 bus routes, traveling 1,081 miles.  Additionally, the Transportation Department provides busing for athletic contests and educational field trips.
If your student was in school last year and did not use transportation, they were marked as “No Transport” and will show as a walker. They will not be receiving a letter in the mail.

 If you would like your student to ride the bus this year, let us know and we will set up their transportation. If your student will not be using school bus transportation, please let us know and we will change them to “No Transport”.
You can log into our transportation software and see all of your student’s information as well. The name of it is Traversa Ride 360 and you will need to set up an account. Go to the "Parent login/Transportation" link above. You will need your students ID number and last name to add them to your account.
If you have changes, you can send an email to our Transportation Helpdesk at [email protected]  or you may also call 419-660-1822 and leave a message.

Transportation Letters

We will be sending letters out on or about the first week of August for the Kindergarten students. You can log into Traversa using the link above to see your child's transportation information. If you still have questions, please email Transportation help at [email protected].


The NCSD Board of Education provides transportation for resident elementary students in grades kindergarten through eight, who live more than one mile from school, and for all students with physical or mental disabilities that make walking impossible or unsafe. Transportation is provided for high school students who reside two miles from the school. 
The administration designates and the Board approves areas of residence from which students are provided transportation to schools. The Board may create exceptions to the established eligibility zones.
Resident students attending a joint vocational school are provided with transportation to the program from the high school they are assigned to.
The Board authorizes the staff responsible for administering the student transportation program to require student identification as a prerequisite to riding a school bus when this is deemed necessary.
